Photos: Fuxing Park

Spring is was in the air this week and the town rejoiced by shedding their puffy jackets. One place the local Shanghai population flock to is Fuxing Park on the Puxi side of town in the former French Concession. Created by the French in ye olde Shanghai days for French-only citizens, today the park is open for all to enjoy.

What’s different in Shanghai to back home are the types of activities happening in parks. At home you’d see various ball sports being played, a bbq, and picnics. In Fuxing Park residents participate in outdoor singing, dancing, karaoke, tai chi, kung foo, cards, checkers, tea, badminton, arguing, walking backwards, hitting themselves, kite flying, and more.

Below are just a few pictures of those activities and the characters that make up the park.
